Frogger

Like the “average” summer movie fare, Pixels has good stuff and bad stuff.  Like most films that want to be profitable and seen as a “hit” in the eyes of the public, the question must that must be asked is “does the good stuff outweigh the bad stuff?”  If you’re an eager pre-teen movie-goer, a parent of an eager pre-teen movie-goer, or a thirtysomething who really digs some deep-reaching retro references, then Pixels is probably right up your alley.  And if you don’t fall into one of those categories?  Well, let’s just say that your princess might be in another castle.

Now, I’m a 23 year old man and have done some stupid things in my life, such as buying 30 double cheeseburgers at McDonalds and climbing on things that I know can’t hold my fat ass which lead to me landing on said fat ass, but one South Carolina man may have taken the award for dumbass of 2010.

What did this man do you ask? Well, he decided to play the game of Frogger in real-life. How do you play it in real-life you ask? Why it’s simple really, all you have to do is find a really busy street in your neighborhood and try to get across it by running and dodging cars, which is something this young man didn’t do well as he got hit by an SUV.

As of Monday night, the 23 year old man, whose name has not been release since I’m sure his parents are proud of the son that they have raised, was in stable condition. I guess we could all say that the man luck out that he had an extra life on him.
